With all due respect, you'd have a better chance of being understood in English than in Hindi. Good luck tho.

i don't agree: I have been there recently and I thanked God each and every day for having attended the Hindi course on duolingo

That severely depends which part of India you went to.

well, I went to the most touristic places in the north (Jaipur, Delhi, Agra, etc...) and I was quite surprised that only a very few people could speak english fluently. Most of the time I had to make an effort to speak their language

I doubt people in Delhi or in Jaipur cannot speak English that a local cannot understand.I mean majority of them know most common nouns and verbs.You could frame a sentence if you would ask any people who is not too old or too young.

hi,

i'm not saying that no one can speak english. i'm just saying that many people can't. for example, i had hard times with drivers, employees at restaurants and hotels (waiters, porters...). I was quite surprised since I expected the people in the touristic business to be proficient in english. good for me: i could practice my hindi more than expected! ;)
